New Music: Painted Palms - Refractor

If Depeche Mode and Of Montreal had an epic dance-off, it would sound like “Refractor.” The lead single off Painted Palms’ sophomore effort, Horizons, sets the pace for a less spacey, more cheery album than their 2014 standout, Forever.


With Eric Broucek (LCD Soundsystem) handling the mix, Chris Prudhomme and Reese Donohue broke out of their email routine and headed to the studio for Horizons. This record promises a fuller sound than the vulnerable bedroom audio of Forever.


Listen to “Refractor” over at Nylon, get Horizons Sept. 4 on Polyvinyl and catch the terrific twosome in concert this fall.
